The best way to do this is for you to go over to The Tire Rack's web site and check out that tire size in a brand you like and see what width rims are recommended for them.

And then do a search here for the info b/c this subject has been stomped to death!! AND recently, too......

Nope , rearend is dropped 1 inches and I run KYB's.There's about .75 inch clearance between tire and inner wheelhouse surface. About the same maybe a little less on the wheel lip ( quarter panel ) These rims have the perfect offset to get away with a 275.
